The concept of this piece was drawn from my own personal journey of pain to healing. When tragedy hits so deep, it has the power to cause a schizm, splitting apart that outside self which seems okay from the inside self crying out for help.
The only solution is integration, for these pieces to be brought together. Sometimes, as in my case, the process may involve professional counseling and therapy. It can also be a frightening prospect, laying oneself vulnerable to the hurts which may actually have had their hand in molding the lives we live today. However, the reward can eventually give worth to the scars, value to the tears and life back to the child inside.
Faith, for me, was key to the success of this process, in the suffering and redemption found in Christ, and his Spirit's drawing to those equipped in the workings of this mind he so marvelously crafted.
